It seems like an obvious statement to make, but Ed Reed is a key to the Ravens' defense, and John Harbaugh thinks he'll have the Ravens' star safety back.

Lewis may be far more vocal than Reed, but I would argue that the Ravens would have a far more difficult time replacing Ed Reed than they will when Ray Lewis eventually retires.

Ed Reed works out at the Ravens facility (Video)

Getty Images Just a day after saying he was going to play this season, safety Ed Reed was at the Baltimore Ravens team facility working out and it was all caught on camera. After watching the video, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to work out like Ed, so I can get some ripped abs like him. All joking aside, we still don’t know if Reed plans on showing up to training...

People who say Ravens are "too old" are really not paying attention...

It kills me when I hear the cliche "the Ravens are too old to compete for a Super Bowl"...I guess some folks are looking only at the aging process of Ray Lewis and the calendar catching up to Ed Reed... both of whom, by the way, played at All-Pro levels last season.But to those naysayers and clockwatchers I have some sound advice--- look at the youth movement that now dominates...
